DAILY?READINGS: Ezra 8; Daniel 9; Revelation 4
…To him that overcometh… Revelation 2:7
…Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:5
In John’s letters to the seven churches in Revelation one recurring statement is set forth as a challenge, “To him that overcometh”. When overcoming seems overwhelming, remember that our Lord has overcome the world (John 16:33). How do we overcome? By trusting in Him (1 John 5:5). We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Rom. 8:37). Today, may we live out His victory as overcomers. —Rex Trogdon
Faith is the victory! Faith is the victory!
Oh, glorious victory, that overcomes the world.
—John H. Yates
